    Today I woke up to 5 chickens dead. And I I think a fox is killing them. I don't have a live trap so I need a way to catch him. Any ideas ?[​IMG]

    You need to know what killed the birds to know how to trap.

    Where are you located and what makes you think it was a fox?

    I had 12 killed this morning in Chatsworth Georgia. I'm out of state so my house sitter had to inform me so I can't investigate but hopefully friend can.

    How about securing your coop instead?
